Recently during the media interaction, when a journalist asked him, “What options do you think voters will weigh before casting their ballots in the Karnataka polls? The actor replied, “Before casting their votes, the voters should know the people they are voting for. The people should not be voting for someone who divides them on communal, caste-based or religious grounds. This is what the BJP ( Bharatiya Janata Party) is trying to do.”
This is not the first time when Prakash Raj criticize the act of BJP. In the past, too, he has been in the news headlines for his aggressive stance against the central government’s policies.
Earlier Prakash Raj said, that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a better actor than him, and that he should, maybe, therefore, give the acting awards he had won to him. Following this comments, a case was registered against the actor in Lucknow court for his remark against Modi. Later the actor stopped to take direct shots at the government and started to share his opinion via tweets.
